On Saturday, I presented at the Lean Startup Machine event in Montreal, along with Jeremy Edberg (Reddit, Netflix, eBay) and some others. Several of the people were in town for the International Startup Festival.
It was the first time I’d talked about the One Metric That Matters (OMTM) in public, and the feedback from the audience was good. Admittedly, these folks were in the very early stages of their startups, spending the weekend getting out of the building in order to understand what was going on, so some of the later, more strategic, metrics weren’t as relevant.
We’ll get into what makes a good OMTM shortly; for now, here’s the deck, fresh from our shiny new Slideshare account.
